A savory quiche will be the star of our brunch...
A delicious pie full of ham, cheese and fresh herbs...
Savory Herb Quiche

Blend eggs with heavy cream until mixed well.
Add fresh herbs, mustard and salt & pepper.
Bake @ 375 for 35-40 minutes.

A beautiful assortment of gorgeous teacups...
I am sharing more teacups from my beloved Bonnie.
I showcased a precious Canadian cup a few weeks ago -
now it is time to display the rest of my treasures that my
sweet friend bestowed upon me - just because she loves me!
I could fill a whole page describing how special Bonnie is and
what she means to me. Bonnie is generous, giving and loving
every day and in all ways! I am blessed beyond measure to
have this wonderful woman as part of my life!

We can't have tea without a delicious dessert~
This is a decadent treat that my friend Julie gave me.
Julie is one of the best cooks that I know and this dessert does not disappoint - it tastes like a sweet oatmeal pie!
Julie's Sawdust Pie
1 pie shell
7 egg whites
1-1/2 c sugar
1-1/2 graham cracker crumbs
1-1/2 c pecans, chopped
1-1/2 c coconut
Mix all ingredients by hand and pour into unbaked pie shell.
Bake @ 325 for 30 minutes and golden brown on top.
Serve warm with homemade whipped cream
and sliced bananas.

Thanks for joining me for Tea Time! How's Florida weather? Chilly? I remember wearing shorts there in December, then flew home to a small airport. No building and standing out in the freezing cold in my short pants for an hour waiting for my girls to come pick me up. lol

  5. Hi Concetta,
    You have a very generous friend. The quiche looks wonderful; love quiche! The Sawdust pie looks good too. You have so many pretty things I see; love the little floral teapot!
    You had asked about the lemon tart. I did not make this one, I bought it at the supermarket. When I do make it I just use a lemon pie filling. One of these days I will have to try making the lemon curd tart I shared from the Victoria magazine. Thank you for joining me for tea today. Hope you have a lovely week.

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality.
